A bouldery start leads to stellar face climbing up high. Original route moves slightly right after the first bolt, then back to the left along the small ledge. Straight up from the 2nd bolt.


Originally put up as a mixed line, 4 Bolts with gear to new stainless anchors. Pro from .5 to 1.5" can be placed between the 1st and 2nd bolts and the 3rd and 4th bolts. The 4 bolts will be replaced soon. (1/11/14 Wade)

Great route with boulder problem start, wish it got more attention and the second bolt was placed better. Crux is right off the ground and easy to deck after first bolt. Jul 30, 2011

FA. Wade Parker and Brade Hoover. This is a mixed line and it isn't recommended as a sport only route. It is a fantastic, well protected line if you take .5 to 1.5" gear (placements can be found between the 1st-2nd bolts, then the 3rd-4th bolts). A bouldery start with a nice face up high makes for an exciting send.

The reason the second bolt is placed so high, is to keep you off of the ledge while clipping the third bolt. Place gear at knee level on the ledge to protect clipping the 2nd bolt.

I will get the anchors replaced as soon.

We replaced the anchors in late November 2013. Thanks to Tim Fisher for donating the two fixe rings and stainless bolts! The 4 bolts on the route will be replaced soon with glue in's. Whether or not the 2nd and 3rd bolts will be moved down slightly is up for debate and a greater conversation for the powers at be. I am open to moving them if the community and admins feel strongly about it. If they are moved, it will make the gear between the 3rd and 4th bolts a must.

You can get one solid piece after the first bolt before manteling on to the ledge and then another piece in a pocket, but I'm not sure how solid the rock is for that pocket. Either way, I'm cool with where the bolts are. The boulder start is really fun and the climbing up top is nice. Jan 28, 2015
